2015 Nissan Murano: A Quick Overview

2015 Nissan Murano: A Quick Overview

Redesigned for this third generation, the new look crossover SUV has matured and gained a more flowing profile like its cousins the Rogue and soon to be released Qashqai.


The Nissan Murano is a two-row five seat crossover with decent cargo space, front or all-wheel drive and an eye on that most lucrative family market. As one of the very first crossover vehicles released in 2003, its pedigree is a good one. Changes for the 2015 model include a new interior, new exterior styling and better gas mileage.


The Exterior

Styling brings the 2015 Nissan Murano into line with the rest of Nissan's SUV lineup. The flowing lines draw the eye along the body, especially from that big grille, over those angled headlights and over the hood to the roofline. The signature chrome grille and Nissan badge is front and centre and chrome accents adorn other key parts of the exterior.


The Interior

New interior has elevated the Murano another level. Nissan interiors are always great, but this new version is better than usual. Soft touch materials, excellent finishing, lots of technology, storage and space. A particular highlight, as always, are Nissan's zero gravity seats. They are exceptionally comfortable, supportive and offer a very nice perch when on the road.


Under the Hood


Is a 3.5-litre V6 gasoline engine that produces 260 hp and 240 lb-ft oftorque. It is mated to a CVT transmission that has been tweaked to offer taller ratios for better fuel economy.


The 2015 Nissan Murano has four trim levels, S, SV, SL and Platinum. The Murano S offers 18 inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, a 7 inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, reversing camera, app integration and six-speaker CD audio.


SV adds an 8 inch touchscreen, voice recognition, navigation, HD radio, fog lights, roof rails, leather steering wheel and an eight-way power driver's seat. SL adds heated external mirrors, driver memory seat, blind spot warning, cross traffic alert, leather interior, heated front seats, 360 degree camera, ambient interior lighting, power liftgate and Bose audio.


The Murano Platinum offers 20 inch alloys, panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and a crash mitigation system.


The 2015 Nissan Murano is an excellent upgrade from the previous model. It exhibits improvements in all the right places while retaining the strengths of the previous version. It still represents one of the best crossover SUVs on the market and is well worth considering if you're in the market for a family car.
